We’d consider staying at A-Na-Lay for the beautiful setting while keeping in mind that the eclectic mix of flashpacker to midrange rooms could prove solid or below average depending on your choice and luck.

Covering much of the headland just south of Horizon Resort and all of the beachfront on Haad Sai Daeng, rooms at this fairly large resort include little blue cottages with enclosed front porches; circular-walled concrete bungalows with glass doors; A-frame cabins with thatch roofs; and old-style bamboo huts fronted by large porches within sight of the beach.

Rooms were built at different stages in the resort’s history and some are a lot more rundown than others. The resort seems to be trying for that shabby chic look, but it’s often more shabby than chic with piles of broken cement collecting dust behind bungalows and some older rooms displaying mould stains. While some appliances were updated in recent years, many of the air-con units have seen better days.

A-Na-Lay’s fan-cooled shacks with partially open-air bathrooms aren’t worth the listed price when comparing to Ngam Kho Resort and Sand and Sea, but walk-in rates are negotiable and these bungalows wouldn’t be a bad deal if you could haggle them below 1,000 baht.

Rooms come in a few flavours.

The cheapest air-con rooms come with nothing but springy bed and hot-water wet bathroom and these are set beside a narrow khlong at the back of the property. We’d throw down the extra 1,000 baht for a superior with better view and extras like fridge and TV—these come in log cabins with porches leading down to a small swimming pool. On the pricier end, the wooden A-frame bungalows (almost “villas”) were built along the beachfront in recent years and look quite smart from the outside.

A-Na-Lay is popular with Thai tourists and we’ve heard that both the service and WiFi can be patchy. You’ll find a billiards table in the restaurant and the resort offers activities ranging from kayaking to karaoke.
